To compile this list, TIME solicited nominations of places—including countries, regions, cities and towns—from its international network of correspondents and contributors, with an eye toward those offering new and exciting experiences.

Buahan, A Banyan Tree Escape and Angsana Saranam Wellbeing Resort were featured as two of the exciting new openings in Bali, Indonesia, which earned them a spot on this year’s list. Read more here. See the full list here: www.time.com/greatest-places.

In Bali, Indonesia, Buahan, A Banyan Tree Escape, was mentioned for its pioneering “no walls, no doors” concept in its bales (villas) and throughout the secluded property. Situated in a quiet enclave north of Ubud, Buahan is surrounded by rice paddies and jungle, next to the Ayung River and waterfall, and offers a sweeping view of Bali’s seven majestic peaks. Each of the resort’s 16 spacious bales is designed to blend indoor and outdoor areas, where only a thin veil separates guests from nature.

We are honoured to have earned two spots in TIME World’s Greatest Places of 2022. Banyan Tree Group had just launched the brand extension, Banyan Tree Escape, this year, with the intent for our guests to commune with themselves, others and nature at their own pace. This recognition serves as a testament to our purpose of offering exceptional, design-led experiences rooted in sustainability and wellbeing through our multi-brand ecosystem.
